New York Area Program Integration Office (NYAPIO)


What We Do

The New York Area Program Integration Office exists to make air travel more efficient and safer in this area. Our mission is to reduce air travel delays. To do that, we developed the New York Area Integrated Master Schedule and Delay Reduction Plan.

In 2007 the airline industry had one of the worst performance records in aviation history. New York area airports have more delays than any airport in the country. Approximately 75% of all delays in the National Airspace System occur because of delays in the NY Metropolitan Area airspace. Delays have a direct impact on the aviation industry and the ability to transport passengers and goods in a timely and cost-effective manner. We exist to fix that.

How We Accomplish our Mission

  • leads a matrix team consisting of representatives from the Air Traffic Organization, Aviation Safety, Airports, and Aviation Policy, Planning and Environment
